We run extensive background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to never allowing a sponsor with a criminal history / any securities related issue to use the platform, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks even if background and criminal checks come back clear.
We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent. When an investor makes an investment with unaffiliated sponsors using the RealtyMogul platform, the investor’s money is transferred directly into a third-party escrow account. All closing conditions in connection with a sponsor’s offering need to be met before the third-party escrow agent will approve releasing investor funds to the issuer or general partner. For example, if an issuer or general partner plans to use funds for a real estate acquisition that does not ultimately transact, the third-party escrow agent will not transfer investor funds to the issuer or general partner, and funds will be returned to investors.
Our controls include visiting every property (or a subset of properties if it’s a fund) to confirm the real estate is what and where the real estate is supposed to be.
We have robust quality controls with detailed checklists and a review of third-party reports.

The Real Estate Company's bio and track record were provided by the Real Estate Company and have not been verified by RealtyMogul or NCPS.
In this transaction, RealtyMogul investors are to invest in Realty Mogul 111, LLC, which is to subsequently invest in AP Lehigh Crossing Venture, LLC, a limited liability company that, through a 100% owned subsidiary, holds title to the Property. The Real Estate Company purchased the Property in December 2017 for $26,100,000 ($123,697/unit). The total project cost is anticipated to be $30,846,522 ($146,192/unit).
The Real Estate Company plans to implement interior and exterior renovations to increase value. The Real Estate Company's capital improvement budget is approximately $4.00 million ($18,994/unit), which is to be allocated as follows: (1) $2,450,600 ($13,391/unit) for interior renovations on 87% of the units; (2) $780,000 ($3,697/unit) for deferred maintenance; (3) $320,000 ($1,517/unit) for general property enhancements; and (4) $457,140 ($2,167/unit) for soft costs, construction management, and a contingency. Approximately 65% of the interior renovations are capitalized to the transaction, while the remainder will come from operating cash flow. Unit interior upgrades will include new cabinets and countertops, plumbing and electrical fixtures, vinyl flooring and carpets (in select units), and new appliances (in select units). Exterior and amenity improvements will consist of a dog park, trash enclosures, gym, lighting package, paint and carpentry. The Real Estate Company plans to renovate 183 units (87% of the Property) over 40 months (4.58 units / month), which they state is a comfortable pace given their track record and in-house construction team. In addition, the Real Estate Company intends to convert 31 two-bedroom/one-bathroom townhomes into three-bedroom/two-bathroom townhomes. An average rent premium of approximately $161/unit/month is being estimated for renovated units.

This will be RealtyMogul's third investment with the Real Estate Company, following Greens at Forest Park and Burlington Court Apartments.
RealtyMogul, along with AION Partners (the "Real Estate Company"), is providing the opportunity to invest in the acquisition of 1416 Livingston Street (the "Property"), a 211-unit multifamily asset located in a gentrifying neighborhood of Bethlehem, PA.
The primary objective of this investment is to acquire the Property, perform modest interior and exterior renovations to capture rental increases, then sell the Property within approximately five (5) years. The Real Estate Company sees this investment as an opportunity to capitalize on a well-located asset, in a gentrifying region, that exhibits high occupancy and favorable fundamentals to support the targeted renovation plan.

*Lease and Sale Comparable information provided by Axiometrics, CoStar, Real Capital Analytics, and a CBRE Appraisal.
The Property is located along Pembroke Road/Freemansburg Avenue, 1.5 miles east of CBD Bethlehem, six miles east of CBD Allentown, and four miles east of Easton, PA. The Property is convenient to I-78, US Route 22, US Route 33, and I-476, which collectively comprise a regional transportation network providing access throughout the Lehigh Valley and to most of the U.S. Eastern Seaboard. The Property is also located 80 miles west of New York City and approximately 71 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Per CoStar, recent changes to a tax program designed to encourage development in Bethlehem have spurred heavier than normal construction. While it is still too soon to determine if Bethlehem can reinvent itself the way its neighbor Allentown did, there are signs of optimism. Multifamily construction has picked up after a slow start, and recent deliveries are leasing quickly. Vacancies remain tight, rent growth has been solid, and the level of apartment sales has been above historical norms.

The above presentation is based upon information supplied by the Real Estate Company or others. Realty Mogul, Co., RM Manager, LLC, and Realty Mogul 111, LLC, along with their respective affiliates, officers, directors or representatives (the "RM Parties") hereby advise you that none of them has independently confirmed or verified any of the information contained herein. The RM Parties further make no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of any such information and undertake no obligation now or in the future to update or correct this presentation or any information contained herein.
Investors should not rely on any forward-looking statements made regarding this opportunity, because such statements are inherently uncertain and involve risks. We use words such as “anticipated”, “projected”, “forecasted”, “estimated”, “prospective”, “believes”, “expects”, “plans”, “future”, “intends”, “should”, “can”, “could”, “might”, “potential”, “continue”, “may”, “will” and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements.
Non-Transferability of Securities
The transferability of membership interests in The Company are restricted both by the operating agreement for that entity and by U.S. federal and state securities laws. In general, investors will not be able to sell or transfer their interests. There is also no public market for the investment interests and none is expected to be available in the future. Moreover, the estimated investment holding period described herein is only a projection, and there can be no assurance when or if an investment may be liquidated. Persons should not invest if they require any of their investment to be liquid. This is particularly important for persons of retirement age, who should plan carefully to assure that their assets last throughout retirement.
Capital Call Risk
The amount of capital that may be required by the Target from the Company is unknown, and although the Target does not require that the Company and its members contribute additional capital to it, it may from time to time request additional funds in the form of loans or sell additional equity. The Company does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by the Target, and in such event the manager of the Target may accept additional contributions from other members of Target or from new members. In the event that the manager of Target advances any capital on behalf of the Company, it will be deemed to be a manager loan at an interest rate that cannot be determined at this time. Amounts that are contributed by existing or new members will be deemed to be additional capital contributions, in which case the Company's interest in Target will potentially suffer a proportionate amount of dilution.
Interest-Only Loan Period
The Target is expected to obtain a senior loan (the “Loan”) to, in part, acquire the apartment community. The Loan is anticipated to have an interest-only period during the first five years of the loan term, which means that there will be no reduction in the principal balance during that interest-only period.
The above is not intended to be a full discussion of all the risks of this investment. Please see the Risk Factors in the Issuer Document Package for a discussion of additional risks.
